A building that incorporates modern design elements allowing easy implementation of current teaching principals within a practical environment.


The purpose built childcare centre is Stage 2 of a 6 stage mixed residential and commercial development.
It forms the initial part of a larger suburban commercial centre that will accommodate a new format supermarket, convenience retail, and local café/tavern offering.

The commercial centre will form an important hub for the local community and provides convenient alternatives to larger retail/commercial offerings at Bayfair and Papamoa.


A commercial building central to a new residential development of mixed levels of density. The development provides all required practical elements to the tenant whilst adopting effective visual features that align well with the immediate environment.

A positive relationship was developed with the tenant from inception through to completion, enabling sharing and assimilation of ideas to ensure mutual design outcomes were achieved.
